In partnership with SetantaBet, 7Cantonas.com brings you “Tonge’s Tips”, a look ahead to the Premier League games with a bit of a twist. This season, Alan, the 7Cantonas team and the good fellows over at GGMU are going head to head in their predictions, and want you, our readers, to join in.
Alan : After a (hopefully) confidence boosting win last weekend, we head down to London to take on one of the Championship graduates. As per other teams, the crowd will be buzzing and this will be seen as their game of the season. That said, we’re Man Utd and we should always be confident, whoever we face! I’m sure if we can quieten the crowd early on, match them for the predicted early effort and resolve, we can move on and take the points. I’m going to tip us up a 3-1 win.

For the bonus tip, I’m going for Arsenal to take some points off City (three would be nice), however i think it will be two! I’m going for a 1-1 in this one!

Mart : After last week’s thrilling 4-1 hammering of Wolves at Old Trafford. United travel to London to face QPR at Loftus Road. QPR, who have only one win at home this season and impressively led against Manchester City twice back in November and will be hoping to pick up a share of the points against the Premiership champions.
United who in contrast to last season are unbeaten on the road will be hoping to pick up the win and temporarily go back to the top of the Premiership (where we belong).
Sir Alex indicated that Berbatov is back for QPR and also said Rafael is in full training (for how long?)-United still have a extensive injury list and will be hoping that Nani and Rooney will be back on form as they were last week against Wolves.
The Loftus Road crowd will be up for this one and hopefully the travelling reds will drown out the noisy home support. I’m backing United to pick up the win with a closely fought 2-0 win.
For the other game, Arsenal travel to Manchester to face current league leaders Manchester City in the 4pm kick off on Sunday. By the time City face Arsenal, United could be top. City who lost at Chelsea last week have a perfect home record and I too see Arsenal battling for a draw in this one with a 1-1.
Tom @ GGMU : With City slipping up in the League against Chelsea last week, there is a chance for United to go top of the league again (albeit possibly for a brief period) if they beat QPR at Loftus Road on Sunday. On this basis and on the back of a confidence boosting win against Wolves, you would have to expect United to pick up the three points. QPR have acquitted themselves well this year but United should still have too much quality. It will be interesting to see the like sof Paul Pogba involved, if he does indeed get some game time.QPR 1 – 2 United
